Interview: Jayro Bustamante, Writer, Director, and Producer of La Llorona, New Guatemalan Horror Movie, Shudder


Watch or Pass Interview with Jayro Bustamante, the writer, director, and producer of the new Guatemalan horror film, La Llorona. We discuss the motivations for the film, Jayro's desire to spread important messages through film, and some of the push back he received making this film. Also find out what he is working on next! So give it a watch (review here) and if you haven't already seen the film, it is available to stream on Shudder. Directed by Jaryo Bustamante. Starring María Mercedes Coroy, Margarita Kénefic, Sabrina de la Hoz and Julio Díaz. Indignant retired general Enrique finally faces trial for the genocidal massacre of thousands of Mayans decades ago. As a horde of angry protestors threatens to invade their opulent home, the women of the house—his haughty wife, conflicted daughter, and precocious granddaughter—weigh their responsibility to shield the erratic, senile Enrique against the devastating truths being publicly revealed and the increasing sense that a wrathful supernatural force is targeting them for his crimes. Meanwhile, much of the family’s domestic staff flees, leaving only loyal housekeeper Valeriana until a mysterious young Indigenous maid arrives.
